Earlier this year, Magnus Johnson, one of Hebridean Housing Partnership’s (HHP) best known and longest serving housing officers, announced his intention to retire once he reached 60. To mark the occasion, HHP Chairman, Norman Macleod presented him with a memento at the organisation’s board meeting on 20 March 2019.

On Friday 29 March, friends and colleagues gathered for a retirement dinner in the Cala.

A spokesperson for HHP said: “Magnus has given 40 years to public service in the Outer Hebrides, with 33 of those years dedicated to housing. He was presented with a variety of gifts, including an iPad and slippers!

“Magnus will be greatly missed by all his colleagues, board members and tenants.

“As Magnus begins his next adventure, we hope he continues to enjoy excellent health, so he can have many days out on the golf course improving his golf handicap.”
